Creative, Alternate Ways to Take Pictures

Sometimes, making a few little changes will give you big results with your photos. Here are a few ideas to get you started.


Change your point of view
Move the camera around--shoot from the hip, above your head, or even down around your feet--to get a unique look at your subject.



Use a time-delay setting creatively
Take a picture of yourself every day, or take a photo of the same place or setting every day. One guy has a blog of self-portraits taken every day for the past six years.



Visualize your blog
Keep your camera handy to record events and items that will add interest to your personal blog, like food, your family, even the new puppy.



Just shoot
Don’t worry about composition or framing. Close your eyes and point the camera, and you might be surprised at how beautiful your photos are. Point, shoot, enjoy.
